on the debt ceiling. not sure he's going to have it on guns, but he's going to drive the really hard-line republicans crazy because he's going to be able to break off 40 or 50 of them for all these other things. chris: that seems to be true as much as the opposition is hotter and perhaps hardening out there on the right. it does seem that the center right and the center are in play and obama is making his move toward them successfully. >> their governing philosophy coming in is that the fever would break among the tea party folks, among the hard right, and also that just folks in the house would sort of move to the boehner philosophy, which is a governing philosophy. the sort of -- chris: in other words, you don't need a majority of the republicans to rule. >> you break the rule, which is what he's done on these big-ticket items. they have been meeting over these last couple of days to figure out wait forward. i think the president was smart to step into these debates early and often and frame them in ways that americans can understand. and you have house republicans trying to play c

taken a step back on this debt ceiling standoff. should it be raised. this is how "the new york times" described it over the weekend. i'll put it up on the screen and have you react to it. backing down from the hardline stance, house republicans said friday they would agree to lift the limit for three months with the requirement that both chambers of congress pass a budget in that time to clear the way for negotiations on long-term deficit reduction, to add muscle to the efforts to bring democrats to the table, they would include a provision in the debt ceiling legislation saying that lawmakers will not be paid if they do not pass a budget blueprint. was it right to step back from challenging the president over raising the debt ceiling? >> well, i think the house proposal is a step in the right direction. no doubt the senate hasn't done it's job. it's been nearly four years since it's passed a budget. but it doesn't go nearly far enough. we have a crisis. i just got back last week from afghanistan. and i had multiple servicemen and women clasp me on the arm and say, please do somethin

the debt ceiling for a few months. we still face the sequestration and the continuing resolution. how does this play out? >> forever. >> feels like that. >> forever. they don't agree. so we're seeing an overlay of this, you know, one side the republicans, the other side the democrats. and i must say post-election, president obama has become more aggre aggressive. military spending, they don't agree with what taxation should be, title, on and on and on. gun control, they don't agree. and on the other hand, you know, we have this sort of slow economy that makes it more difficult to cut a deal. and i should add to that, a constitutional crisis in a way because this whole debt ceiling has been a weapon that the house of representatives have used to gain power. it's not just the republicans versus the democrats. it's the house versus the president. i don't know how it the play out. >> meanwhile, the marketses are on fire. the s&p 500 hitting a new five-year high along with the dow jones industrial average. what is driving the stocks and do you think it's sustainable for the year? >> the part of

. >> good morning, john. two parts of the vote today. first of all, raising the debt ceiling. allowing the country to borrow more to pay off the debt that we have already incurred. something president obama was pushing more. conservative republicans wanted to see cuts first. now the republican leadership said we won't link the two. we'll raise the debt ceiling until the middle of may. however there is a catch. they want to ensure that a budget is in place. a spending plan for the country. so the vote also says if lawmakers on either said don't pass a budget by april 15 -- tax day for everyone else -- they would lose their income. no paychecks until they have a budget. that's where we are now. that's the crux of the vote coming up today. the white house says the president will sign the bill if it's passed. republican ps have been counting their votes. despite opposition still from conservatives who want to see spending cuts happen first. they believe they have the votes for it to pass. 17 conservatives could derail that. >> we'll see if there is movement. thank you very much. >> the wom

in the house of representatives today pushed through a bill that will move the debt ceiling deadline to may, at least. while it doesn't solve it entirely, if the senate passes it, and the president signs it as expected, it will put off for now the threat of another political meltdown like the one that led to the downgrade of the u.s. credit rating back in 2011. >>> now we go outside, which depending on where you live, might take some steeling of yourself, given the air that has descended on a lot of our country. take, for example, nbc's kevin tibbles out in the cold tonight in chicago. kevin, good evening. >> reporter: hey, why not? well, it will take a couple more frigid days to freeze the chicago river, but tonight temperatures here in chicago, new york and elsewhere are colder than they are in juneau, alaska.

in the house tomorrow that would allow us to raise the debt ceiling. republicans said they didn't want to do that without cutting back spending. the president didn't want the two linked and republicans apparently have relinquished that threat and pushed for the raising the debt ceiling temporarily into the spring to pay bills. they also say if either chamber doesn't come up with a permanent budget, that chamber, either the house or senate, the lawmakers won't get paid. we'll see how that vote goes later today. the president laid out a number of things including climate change, gay rights, health care immigration, and it remains to be seen how much of that they will be able to tackle in the second term. >> he better eat his wheaties. time to get done. thank you very much. >>> happening now, fire crews are battling to contain a fire at beale air force base about 50 miles north of sacramento. the fire has been burning for hours. this is what it looked like just last night. firefighters say they now have the fire about 75% contained. it broke out about 2:30 yesterday afternoon inside a building

't want to fight over the debt ceiling because you thought you can't do that, you have to pay the government's bills. do you think this fight over priority is worth shutting the government down? >> we're not interested in shutting the government down. what happens on march 1 is spending goes down automatically. march 27 is when the moment you're talking about, the continuing resolution expires. we are more than happy to keep spending at those levels going on into the future while we debate how to balance the budget, grow the economy, create economic opportunity. that's the kind of debate the country deserves. by the way, if we keep going down this path, we will have a debt crisis. it's not an if question. it's a when question. this isn't a republican or democrat thing. it's a math thing. we have to get serious with this problem if we want to save people from the problems that result from a debt crisis. >> let me challenge you from a critic further on the left. a lot of the centrist economists may disagree with you in some areas but agree about the impending debt crisis. some o
